I'm 28 years old. Since 1995, I came to the United State. I had unknown allergy in 1998, so
the doctor had checked my blood. He tried everything he could to diagnose my allergy. Instead
of finding a good reason for that, he told me that I had the thal minor. Since then, I search
information from the web, and understand what have had happended to me in the past. I'm from
Thailand. I'm sure I have had the blood check more than 15 times in my life; however, none of
the doctor has told me anything about thal. They just asked me to eat more liver which contains
iron mineral. They said I have low red blood cells, but told me to not worry. Sometimes I almost
get faint when I quickly stand up, and I still do. I look yellowish as well. The doctor in US told
me that I don't have low red blood cells, but the red blood cells are smaller than standard.
He said not to worry, but warn me to not marry with anyone with thal minor or thal major.
I read the letters from this website, and feel like we are talking the same language. Thank you.
